Who is to Blame; The Road or Chauffeur?

The casualties that occur daily on Nigerian roads can be linked to the deplorable state of roads and the controller of vehicles steering, however do we blame the roads or the chauffeur?


Nigeria's terrestrial transportation includes, rails and roads- which is the commonly used mode of transportation.
These routes are divided into three categories; the trunk A road, which is the Federal roads, the trunk B, State and trunk C roads, which leads to streets and residential areas. The total kilometres of road in Nigeria is estimated 193,320km.
Research has shown that the state of roads in Nigeria has certainly become a national shame and unnecessary embarrassment. Driving on roads is actually death traps, one with no survival. It can be likened to grinding engines.
Work hours are lost in traffic and scores of innocent people are killed every jiffy or goods and monetary equivalents are wasted on Nigerian roads. It has been discovered that over 5,000 people die daily in motor accidents and 65,000 gets injured.
It is true that Nigeria is a lawless country, and everyone that holds the steering is a driver no matter the state he is. Perhaps the state of the country has reduced value on life. How can someone so old, with a blur vision, someone without driver's license or someone who does not understand road signs, drive you, and you comfortably sit and doze off?
Is this problem not the road? Let's take a memory drill
Statistics showed that in 1991, 1.4trillion naira has been spent on road construction and maintenance with very little evidence of the money spent. Same was the case the following year till date. 
In the 2015 budget, transport got 2.1billion. If we take a rundown from 1991-2016, roads in Nigeria could have been better, if work was done appropriately and the right materials were used, if construction companies didn't use outdated designs and if politics did not tangle the processes. Considering the money spent to work done it's 80:10. Roads during rainy season are hell.
In every respect, the Nigerian authorities are guilty, as well as the citizens. You may raise an eyebrow but yes! It is high time we told the truth, Nigerian citizens are so comfortable in whatever that comes their way, and easily adjust to every situation. People who know this sabotage the situation for their interest. There's no revolution, only scared whispers is heard at grass root and dies there.
